What Do You Do To Relax?

Rarely do I ever feel completely relaxed. My brain is always on. It is seldom that I am able to just tune everything out and off.

So today is my sons 16th birthday and I promised myself that I would turn everything off and focus on him for as long as a 16 year old would allow on his birthday. Well, his birthday request was to go to Itchatucknee Springs and go tubing so that is what we did. There was no cell service and no wifi. Floating down that river in a tube was the most relaxed I have been in a very long time UNTIL… From behind I hear music. I instantly became annoyed even though it was music I like. As the music approached I kept thinking who on earth brings electronics down the river. I was no longer relaxed, the people chatting and the children screaming as they splashed each other didn’t bother me, but as the music floated up to us and passed us I hear others making the same comments that are going on in my head. I didn’t let it ruin the day but it was annoying.

There are some times and places that electronics even with music should not be a part of. It made me realize how important it is to just unplug sometimes. It’s good for the soul and the heart.

Technology Reunites Families

While I have my husband, his family and my boys, I miss my family dearly. Over 500 mile apart and sometimes feels it like thousands.

We lost 2 members of our family this year, my mom and my cousin. Both dying way to young. This has really made me realize how short life is and how important family is. I can’t even imagine not having extended family but for many years while busy starting and raising my own family I took having extended family for granted, assuming they would always be there. Thank God for technology.

If it weren’t for Facebook I¬†probably would have never reconnected with my extended family. I love waking up in the morning and going on Facebook first thing and getting a glimpse in the lives of my family. I love seeing all the pictures of all the nieces¬†and nephew and cousins. I feel like I get to take some part in watching them grow up which would never have been possible pre-Facebook. Because of technology I have been able to reunite with family that I have not communicated with in years and have been introduced to some I have never met.

Thanks to technology I have been fortunate enough to be part of planning a family reunion with my family and the great thing about it is even if I can’t physically be there I can be there via Skype or Facetime.
